Remember Tyler Perry’s former employee who was arrested for stalking Perry after he was fired last year?
Well he’s back.
Joshua Sole, a 27-year-old Dunwoody resident, made headlines last November when he broke into Tyler Perry’s Studios in Atlanta, barricaded himself in a room and refused to come out.
It took police 4 hours to extricate Mr. Sole from the room.
Security was puzzled as to how Sole gained access into the fortified movie studio after he was escorted off the premises. It turns out Sole broke in through the ceiling.
Sole was taken into custody and booked into the Fulton County jail.
Perry filed a lawsuit against Sole asking for $100,000 plus $25,000 for attorney fees. He was also granted a restraining order against Mr. Sole.
But Sole is countersuing Perry and an employee, according to WENN.com.
Sole filed a lawsuit in Atlanta on May 13, claiming Brett Hendrix, his supervisor at Tyler Perry Studios at the time, “subjected him to verbal and physical sexual harassment” during his employment at Tyler Perry Studios.
Sole is suing Perry for libel for referring to Sole as “mentally disturbed” in a Facebook post.
Sole claims he suffered depression and anxiety as a result of the libel.
He is seeking unspecified monetary compensation for his pain and suffering, emotional distress, reckless failure to provide plaintiff with a safe work environment, battery, invasion or privacy, and pretty much everything he can stuff into the lawsuit.
Not surprisingly, Perry’s reps had no comment on the lawsuit.
Leave the pretty boys alone, Tyler. They’re nothing but trouble.
